Number 1, Amber Villas
About the home
The villa is in a fantastic location, just 500m from the centre of town, yet enjoys tranquil gardens and views across orchards to the mountains. Dalyan is a small town near the Turquoise coast of the Mediterranean. The town is on a fertile river delta which flows down to a protected turtle sanctuary (Iz Tuzu beach). Across the river is the ancient city (Caunos) and upstream is a large freshwater lake where you can find thermal mud baths and quiet beaches.
The end-terrace villa has a huge shared pool and gardens with a large terrace ideally sited for both the morning and daytime sun. There are 3 en suite bedrooms, offering flexible family accommodation. The ground floor has a large lounge/kitchen, toilet and private terrace. The garden provides an oasis of colour and shade with various trees and flowers. There is a car-parking area close to the property which is in a quiet location.
** Amber villa is also very close (200m) to our other house in Dalyan, a luxurious and modern four bed, three bathroom villa with a large private pool and gardens. See Holiday Lettings #64296. Available to rent as a pair for larger groups who wish to holiday together, without living in each other's pockets **

Further details indoors:
The villa is newly built and no expense has been spared to provide you with a luxury home from home. All possible electical appliances have been newly fitted and each bedroom and the lounge has air-conditioning.
On the ground floor there is a large lounge with attached fully-equipped kitchen and dining area. There is also a separate toilet. There is comfy and modern seating for 6 and fabulous interior furnishings. French doors open onto the private patio and shared gardens.
On the first floor, there are two bedrooms, the master bedroom has a double bed and en-suite bathroom plus balcony overlooking the terrace and the gardens. The second bedroom, also with en-suite shower room has a balcony and overlooks the front of the gardens.
On the second floor, the third bedroom (also en-suite) has twin beds and is great as a retreat for older kids (as the room is under the eaves some has restricted height). Please note that the room is large and fine for adults - kids might just like the adventure of being on their own floor!
All windows have fabulous curtains and shades to keep out the glare of the sun, but also have flyscreens so you can open the windows without worrying about insects coming in.
Further details outdoors:
Outside the property is a private terrace with shade - perfect for al-fresco dining. The gardens themselves are large (plot is 1,200m2) and a mix of laid to lawn and flowers, trees and bushes.
The outlook is over a large pomegranate orchard and then on to the mountains around Dalyan. There is a huge half-olympic length pool (shared with the 4 other properties on the site). This is great for swimming and really allows you the freedom to have some fun. Although shared, the gardens are quite private and not particularly overlooked by other properties.
The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
The Turquoise Coast and Lycia region of Turkey is home to some of the best attractions in the country and the whole of the coastline is spectacular. Fethiye and Bodrum are great for combining ancient sights and with modern facilities. Marmaris is a more European style resort and Ephesus is an unmissable ancient site.
The climate in this beautiful area is warm and pleasant from April to November, with temperatures soaring in June, July and August. There is also a constant light refreshing breeze.

The Dalyan area
Dalyan is a small town which remains unspoilt by tourism, yet offers a good variety of restaurants and cafes for you to choose from. Dalyan is also home to many interesting and colourful traditional shops, which remain open late into the evening, perfect for browsing in after the sun has gone down.
The closest beach to Dalyan is Iz Tuzu Beach, a perfect stretch of golden sand which is unspoilt as it is a preserved turtle breeding ground. We love to take a boat trip along the river which takes you to dock at the beach. While you relax on the beach, a barbecue of fresh local fare is cooked on the boat, which you can then enjoy while sailing back along the river. These trips are unforgettable, as well as being good value. There are also renowned and rejuvenating natural mudbaths in the area.
There are several local travel agencies which will be able to tailor-make excursions for you, examples include white-water rafting, hiking, micro-light flights, jeep safaris, sailing etc.

Fly to Dalaman airport which is approximately 3.5 hrs from the UK and then a 20 minute transfer to Dalyan.
We can arrange for these transfers for around 45-60 GBP return via our local agent (the exact price depends on your party size). You can also get a local taxi, but these are more expensive than pre-arranged transfers. Private car hire is also available at Dalaman airport, or in Dalyan itself (hiring in Dalyan may be cheaper and agencies will deliver the car to the villa).

We stayed in No 1 Amber Villa from 31 July 2011 until 7 August 2011, villa is absolutely beautiful, very well equipped, everything you could think of it had. Added bonus that every bedroom had an en-suite which was great when everybody getting ready to go out. Gardens & pool area very well looked after and ample sunbeds for each villa ideal for relaxing by the pool. Dalyan is such a relaxed place, if you want a chill out holiday it's the place to go. Transfers from and to airport arranged for us and ran very smoothly. We have been to Dalyan 6 times and by far the best accommodation we have ever stayed in. Definately stay at villa again, already thinking about next year.
